politics average of all polls show mitt romney taking a .7% lead on president obama. the race was this tight a month ago. right after the republican national convention and right before the democratic national convention. we have been here before. the race has followed this pattern for awhile. when mitt romney makes gain, the polls tend to show the candidates tied. but if you listen to right-wingers like ann colter, this race is already over. >> i think it is over. the reason i think it's over, of course, i thought it was over last week and the week before. romney is going to win. the reason he's going to win is this was the most-watched debate since 1980 when ronald reagan ran against carter and there was only one debate that year. >> fox news is pulling out all the stops. check out the electoral p prediction map fox trotted out today. look at the red states. they gave mitt romney solid democratic states like new mexico and pennsylvania. really? polls should be a snapshot of the current state of the race and there's no doubt mitt romney is benefitting from his debate performa
in governor romney's favor. in the latest nbc news polling, chris, they're showing that seniors are, that 83% of them say that they're enthusiastic about voting. that's up six points from 2008. that's a group that tends to lean republican. but when you look at latinos and young people, enthusiasm among young people down 20 points, enthusiasm among latinos, down 8 points from 2008. those are important voting blocs for the president. >> you've got it, and the deal is this, mitt romney's going to win seniors, 60% of seniors, something like that. he's going to win massively, and tear all going to go vote because they do, because they're good citizens, and they read, and they go vote. that's the deal. what barack obama did in 2008 was expanded the universe of potential democratic voters. he brought in a lot of first-time voters. the footprint of minority voters, the footprint of young voters was larger inside the electorate than usual. the problem with doing that is he promised them a lot of stuff, a lot of stuff in order to do that. and, of course, the reality of governance and the reality of wh
polling and new signs today that enthusiasm is building for governor mitt romney's white house bid. welcome to "america live," everyone, i'm megyn kelly. right now the governor's in the battleground state of iowa about to hold a rally. his crowds have been growing, and voter excitement building according to the pollsters. a new politico poll finds more republicans than democrats now say they are extremely likely to vote in this election by a margin of 85-75%, 10-point margin. only three weeks ago the number was 81-78% in favor of the democrats, that is a 13-point swing in romney's favor in three weeks' time. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power pl" on fox foxnews.com live. is that all about the debate? >> well, yes and no. it's also in part that when the previous poll was taken, republicans were feeling crabby about mitt romney, so that was art potentially low maybe for the -- artificially low maybe for the republans. the truth is, and we've known this really since 2010, since before the 2010 election, republican intensity and enthusiasm contin
that shows romney up a great bit. now the real news begins, the state by state by state polls. >> four weeks away. can you believe it. >> we have a few to report on this morning. >> the election is coming. the fight for battleground states, less than four weeks until election day in ohio where there are 18 electoral votes up for grabs. a new cnn poll conducted after the debate shows the president leading by four points, 51-47. romney has gained four points there in just over a week. in new hampshire a new wmur granite state poll showses in last nine day he's whittled the 15-point lead down to 6 points. national polls has romney edging ahead of barack obama for the first time this year. the question is, is this what happens naturally, or was this spurred by the debate? >> it doesn't happen naturally. it happens after an earthquake. >> really? >> there was a political earthquake last week, the likes of which i've never seen in american politics, where a shift happened that dramatically in one night. donny, you've seen these things. i had somebody tell me you need seven positive impressions to
even in the polls. tommy, good to have you. where do you think and why do you think for mitt romney, the swing state polls have swung so far back. is it just the debate or the normal reassessment that goes on in the campaign or what? >> several reasons, neal. you touched on a few of them and let me thank you for having me on your program. you always get closer when a presidential campaign gets close to the election and it is bound to tighten up and a lot of people are undecided . the debate was helpful and we hoped for a signal and we got a grand slam and number three paul ryan did an excellent job in his debate against the vice-president. and number four, people are very concerned about the fiscal cliff that you are talking about this morning. you are spot on, neal and number five, people are concerned about the spending and they know if they don't change the direction of the country, we'll have a fiscal cliff and could have a fiscal melt down and they are looking to a new direction and that is with mitt romney and paul ryan and tommy thompson. >> and what if they get e mitt romney
week, mitt romney is seeing gains across the poll. governor romney is leading president obama 49-47, among likely voters and governor romney is picking up steam when it comes to women, according to the brand-new pew survey, tied with obama at 47%. that's an astonishing 18-point gain in one month among women, leading overall, 49-45. it is not just the national polls. in michigan, president obama's lead has been cut to just 3 points, within the margin of error. and obama led by 10 points in september. the same goes for the all-important state of pennsylvania. governor romney is only behind 3 point there is as well. you know where the bitter people, clinging to their guns and religion live n. wisconsin, the president obama lead shrunk by 5 points, leaving governor romney in striking distance there. today, because of the potential to win in some of these states, states that once seemed out of reach, there are reports of the romney campaign could be shifting strategy. we will be getting additional polls to show romney with an edge in ohio with a small margin, virginia and florida. we
things. >> sean: as romney surges in the polls, fear of a major staff shake-up speeps through obama chicago campaign headquarters. >> whenever there is a bad moment in a campaign, then suddenly fingers begin pointing. >> sean: what caused republican vice-presidential candidate paul ryan to shut down this liberal mainstream media interview? we have the tape. >> osama bin laden is dead-- >>> and disturbing new reports that al qaeda is coming back and could be more dangerous than ever before. >> ask bin laden if he is better off now than he was four years ago?! >> sean: we are just a mere 28 days from election day, four weeks from tonight. and "hannity" starts right here, right now. >> tonight, there are reports out of chicago that fear is now gripping the obama campaign headquarters in the wake of last week's disastrous debate. top advisers to the president's re-election effort are rumored to be considering a major staff shake-up as romney's impressive surge continues and panic sets in and david axelrod and stef new cutter are frantically searching for answers. not even their left-win
-point reversal from a week ago. >>> and according to a "new york times"/cbs poll, mitt romney leads the president by one point in colorado. last month the president was up one point in that state. in virginia, president obama's lead from last month grew slightly. he's now up 51%-46%. and in wisconsin, the candidates are within the margin of error after the president lost a point from last month and mitt romney gained two. in all three battleground states, voters by double digits believe the economy is getting better compared to the numbers back in july. >> and mark halperin, that may be the big takeaway from this poll. the race is getting much closer. nobody can predict what's going to happen. if you look at a big friend, thoug trend, you've got to look at a lot of americans in these swing states are looking at the economy saying things are getting better. >> it's clearly a huge factor and yet, obviously, the debate from denver is also a huge factor. i think, you know, we look a lot at the margin of error, and these numbers aren't shifting all that much. what's key is in a lot of the states the p
, romney-ryan ticket is riding high with polls and pundits dubbing it a draw. >> did you get a chance to watch the debate last night? yeah. yeah. i think you might agree with me that there was one person on stage last night who was thoughtful, and respectful, steady, and poised. the kind of perp you want to turn to in a crisis. that was the next vice president of the united states paul ryan. [ applause ] >> i feel great. >> over breakfast, ryan said he was pleased by the performance and had been ready for biden's attacks. >> how do you feel? >> it's what i expected. >> biden was clearly the aggressor. >> with all due respect that's a bunch of mu lar i can. >> vice president scoffed so much at ryan the rnc pumped out a web video immediately. snap polls showed a split decision. 48% of debate watchers said ryan won in cnn poll to 44% biden. >> we're saying these are from your act wares -- >> who interrupted ryan so often he accused biden overcompensating for the president's losing performance last week. >> i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground. but i think people
quinnipiac poll, little boost from the debate there. let's come over to a huge state. romney probably needs to win florida. i can give you a scenario where he wins without florida, but it's a hard one. he had been down pretty big numbers. look at this. "the wall street journal" poll 48% to 47%, a statistical tie in the battleground state of florida. come up the coast, predebate there were polls in the state of virginia showing the president opening up a big lead outside the margin of error. new poll out today, romney 48%, president obama 47%. a statistical tie in battleground virginia. so there's colorado, nevada, florida, virginia. and one i'm just back wolf from the state of ohio. we had a cnn poll showing romney making gains. president still with a very narrow lead. consistent with that a new nbc "the wall street journal" poll out today, governor romney at 45%, predebate polls showing romney down seven, eight, even nine points. in all the battleground states and national polls romney's coming up. that's the momentum the republicans hope to keep in tonight's debate. >> john, is there any

has it at four. clearly, still a lot of work for romney. let's keep going. virginia, we saw polls before the first presidential debate starting to stretch outside the margin. back to a dead heat. that's nbc news "wall street journal" mars poll and down to florida and here's another one. it started to open up a handful. there is no question, no question, the race changed after the the first presidential debate. romney got a bounce. but when you get a bounce, the challenge is to sustain it. that's the big challenge. can paul ryan keep the republican momentum? >> so, it's narrowed in these battleground state, but is there any indication that first debate created new battleground states? >> some evidence. i'm a bit skeptical. but one state where the numbers changed, mitt romney's birth state of michigan. his dad was governor there. our cnn poll had it close to ten points. looked like no way the republicans could put that into play. three points. so that's within the margin of error. that sheds michigan back into play. do the democrats now think we have to spend money here? we have to
keep their season going. >> and getting tight. the poll just released that shows mitt romney picking up momentum in key places. >>> we'll have those stories just ahead. first we want to go to the news4 ve desk. >> crews still on the scene of a deadly house fire in east baltimore that has killed five people, including four children. take a look. our chopper is now over the scene. wbal is reporting the grandmother and four children were killed. you can see a look at that aerial shot. you can see the apparatus as well as some flashing lights. we know that a man had to jump from a second story window. at one point a firefighter fell through the floor and two firefighters received minor injuries. investigators still not clear how the fire started. >>> thank you. >>> 6:00 a.m., and it is just 48 degrees out there. a chilly start to our day. we have a big baseball game today at nats park. we'll know if it's going to warm up for the baseball game. >> what do you say, v.j.? >> yeah, it's going to warm up, just not quite where we were yesterday. ten degrees cooler today. >> whoa. th's
romney. obama falls into the trap and his polls crash again. he loses a debate. he loses the week after the debate, and he loses big bird. i've never seen anything like this, newt. it is amateur hour. >> well, i think what you're finally seeing is that once the shell cracks and once the facade breaks, i think obama right now is totally disoriented. they are shocked watching six months of careful work just disappear in 90 minutes. it was the worst performance which an incumbent president i think in my lifetime. even jimmy carter did better than that 90-minute performance by obama, and i think they are probably literally shellshocked right now which sets the stage for tonight. i think it's going to be very interesting to watch tonight. i suspect, i don't know, but i suspect biden's going to come in there trying to re-establish some sense of momentum, and i think that ryan's got to go in, stick to the facts and be calm and steady and a potential president. >> just on the joe biden thing for a second. nobody, including obama, has really created an argument, a rationale, a reason for re-elec
schwartz runs quinnipiac universitys polling institute. >> right now, pew has romney up by three points. gallup has obama up by five points in their seven-day track, but since the debate they have obama up by just three points. >> reporter: or how about old friend ray fair, an economist we've been visiting every four years since the george h.w. bush administration. he's got an economic model. >> so right at this moment, its 49.5% of the two-party vote for obama. >> reporter: so the polls and models call it a toss-up. but curiously, the betting public tells a very different story. online betting prediction markets, like ireland's intrade, which takes bets from americans, and england's betfair, which doesnt, have made obama the strong favorite for months. the lone domestic and entirely legal betting haven, the iowa electronic maets at the university of iowa. ever frugal, we asked hari srinivasan, our man in the midwest-- at least last week-- to drop in. >> sreenivasan: this is the entire iowa electronic market? >> this is our server room right here. >> sreenivasan: so the entire predictio
to you on this question, because the polls, recent polls in particular show that governor romney closed what had been a very large gap, especially among women voters just in the last week. so what do you think's going on there and what do you think are the issues driving that? >> well there are two things going on. first of all we need to remember that, and kellyanne said it as well, women voters didn't like mitt romney, at all. by 20 points they personally disliked him going into that first debate. they saw an mitt romney that was very different than what they had expected and saw someone that they thought was much more rod mate-- moderate, more likable than they expected. that said, women still were voting for (back-- barack obama after the debate in the battleground poll, for example, by 10 points. and so women are still support og bama, men are still supporting mitt romney. and in the battleground states that's even more. the biggest difference in the polls, were how energized the democratic women were. a lot of unmarried women, a lot of younger women were not very energized after t
for the president with new polls showing mitt romney closing the gap in some key battleground states. surveys from quinnpiac university, cbs news and the new york times show a dead heat in colorado and mitt romney cutting the president's lead in wisconsin in half. fox's doug luzader looks ahead to tonight. >>reporter: both vice presidential candidates are heading into tonight's debate with some new poll numbers. this is our brand new fox news poll. it shows that joe biden and paul ryan are pretty evenly matched, within the margin of error as far as their favorability numbers are concerned. but look at the unfavorables. that's where joe biden tonight has some ground to make up. paul ryan arrives in kentucky for his big night, swarmed by supporters. vice president joe biden is scheduled to arrive later today. this one on one between them is getting a lot of build because the stakes are so high after last week's obama/romney debate that may have turned this race on its head. president obama still stinging after what was seen as a weak performance, told abc's "world news" last night that biden just n

. the latest nbc news marist poll shows mitt romney with 48% of the vote. president obama 47%. that's likely voters in the commonwealth. that's a shift from last week hen the president had 48% and governor romney had 46%. those numbers are both well within the poll's margin of error. so we wanted to find out who is really ahead in virginia. i'm joined by brian moran, chairman of the democratic party of virginia. also cory stewart, the chairman of the prince william board of county supervisors, also a republican candidate for lieutenant governor there. let's start off, gentlemen, with listening to some sound from undecided voters in virginia. this is after the vice presidential debate on thursday. take a listen. >> i think the -- what was it, 23 million people are unemployed. i think that that's a big statistic, especially for young grads, especially young college grads. >> both have packages to create jobs. however, the jobs that are going to be created by president obama and vice president joe biden are going to be ones that are immediate jobs. >> all right, cory, let's start there. will pr

that helps. >> that's why the debate was so damaging for obama. >> are we going to see a movement in the poll, dan, as a result of the debate. >> i think we'll see some movement and romney will get a bump. whether he'll get one in ohio is a good question he's got to keep that momentum going. >> briefly, james. >> i think he'll get a bump, but i think the most important outcome for the debate for romney, is that he energized the party and they believe they can win again and i think that's an even more significant accomplishment in the short run than a bump in the polls. >> jason, thanks. >> one debate down and three more to go, believe it or not. the vice-presidential candidates get their turn next week in kentucky. can paul ryan keep the republican momentum going in his face-off with joe biden? >> skrooip vice-presidential candidates joe biden get their chance when the two square off in kentucky in the one and only debate. and jason, let's first talk about, i guess it's been six weeks or so since the paul ryan selection. how well has he done on the ticket and added to the romney campaign? >>
romney will campaign through north carolina. in the meantime a new poll gives romney a one-point lead over the president in colorado, but the quinnpiac university/cbs news/new york times poll found president obama has a three-point advantage in wisconsin. and in virginia romney still holds a five-point lead over the president. >>> new this morning rescue crews in florida continue their round-the-clock search efforts for a construction worker still missing in the rubble of a parking garage collapse. last night crews pulled a worker out from the pile of debris at miami-dade college 13 hours after the garage, which was under construction, first fell. he was flown to a nearby hospital in critical condition. two workers were killed, eight others were injured. >>> a discouraging development in the search for a missing 10- year-old girl in colorado. overnight authorities say they found a body just a few miles from where jessica ridgeway disappeared, but they won't say if the case is linked. ridgeway disappeared friday. investigators say she was likely abducted. the fbi and police will be b
romney is seeing a bump in the polls and in some states is eating nearly ahead. by dint will try to turn this around -- -- biden will try to turn this around, and the burden is on ryan to keep romney's bounce here alive for a few more days until the president and mitt romney face off again next week. that is the biggest reason i think that is a big reason why this does matter. this is the first or maybe the only campaign where one side is campaigning against the policies of the other party's president as much as they are against the presidential nominee. paul ryan and his budget proposals are a flash point in this campaign, so it is unique in that sense because by then -- biden will be hammering paul ryan in the gop ticket on his proposal and on long-term fiscal issues. >> you framed it this way -- in 2008 gentlemen joe debated sarah palin, and you are wondering if scranton joe will show up for tonight's debate. >> sources i talked to on both sides of the aisle say this will be an aggressive, forward-a leading joe biden, someone who will really want to frame a negative message against ro
at the polls. is that the reason you see the president leading romney among women in virginia, he's 16 points up over romney, the president is. he's 12 points up in ohio, 13 points in florida, ten points in wisconsin, six points in colorado among women voters in those key swing states? >> yes. it's not only rape that we're talking about. contraception is a huge issue. it's changed society in many ways. so women's access to contraception is the number one factor and allows us to go from second class status to first-class status. it allows us to have autonomy over our bodies and over our decision as far as our career path and family planning. >> laura bassett and zelina, thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >>> coming up, moderate mitt. meet 2009 mitt. a new tape surfaces with him praising glenn beck. but the questions don't stop there. you're watching "politicsnation" as we get ready for a big night here on the place for politics. msnbc. how did i get here? dumb luck? or good decisions? ones i've made. ones we've all made. about marriage. children. money. about tomorrow. here's to good
or two, by about half in some of these polls. putting mitt romney within striking distance of the president. now, he may still, mitt romney may still have a challenge, a hurdle to clear with some undecided voters here. and that's surrounding this auto bailout. the president of course supported that bailout, pushed it through. the president and his campaign says that bailout saved hundreds of thousands of jobs not just in detroit but here in ohio and elsewhere around the country as well. we'll have to see whether governor romney will be able to close the deal with some undecided voters. potential challenge notwithstanding, paul ryan made the case again here today why he believes the country needs to make a change in the white house. >> right now people in the top two tax brackets, they can shelter a lot of their income from taxation by putting them in various tax loopholes. take away those tax shelters and more of their income is subject to taxation. so the base of income that is being taxed is bigger and broader. that means we can lower tax rates for everybody. >> reporter:
